Can you fake the referrer as EMAIL for CPA networks?

    Is this possible? I'm working with some CPA networks doing grey hat stuff but I'm worried that I'm going to get caught and it looks awfully suspicious if I have a blank referrer. I always say that its because I don't want them to know where I'm advertising, but the truth of the matter is, I don't know any better.

    I'm using T202 to cloak and its only like 99% (1% gets through so they see my junk traffic come through).

    What can I do to prevent this?

    For zip/email submits, I still cloak the URL. How do you BHers get this done? Just make WP blog and use CPARedirector? What about making your own LP and using that? Is that frowned upon?

    I would like to know the answer too. I read somewhere that this can be done using PHP, don't have the URL now :(

    you can redirect from a WP blog with a double meta refresh redirect. Something like CPASavoir plugin will work 100% and will look like traffic coming from that blog.

    This, or a similar solution like referer.us to make the traffic appear to be coming from a legit site is probably your best bet.

    Regarding faking as 'email'. From personal experience there's no such thing since outbound links in emails usually ALREADY have blank referres so it may not be as suspicious as you think it is. Of course, much better if you can make it look like it's coming from a legit site/blog.

    Hope this helps.
